Ephraim: I WAS slightly anxious as it was my first time on a real set ever, but it was actually the best first job to have because I already knew some people there (namely Jake and John from school) so they helped me segue in with the people there. However, even without that, the whole cast and crew are great, so there wasn't the slightest problem with jumping right in.
Ephraim: When I was a small child I was always a big fan of playing make-believe. When I got older and realized [make believe] was a viable career option I decided to go with it. I think I finalized that decision in grade 12 when I starred in my high school's production of Six Degrees of Separation as Flanders. It was a really life-crystallizing experience, and I think it was during that production that I finally decided once and for all that it was what I wanted to do with my life.
Ephraim:(Describes his character, Danny on Falcon Beach) On the outside, he's the sarcastic and funny friend we all know and love. Inside, he's insecure and just wants to prove himself to everyone. I know this character well, because I'm a lot like him.
Ephraim: (Describes the audition process) Well, the audition process was fairly normal, as far as I could tell. When I first got the sides for the audition, there was no direct mention of Rick's abusive nature but I really got a sense of something going on underneath the character's surface that attracted me to the role. It was really neat to come to the callback to find out my intuitions were right (and my suspicions were confirmed!). Rick was the only part I'd auditioned for on Degrassi.
Ephraim: My first professional acting gig? Oddly enough, it was Degrassi. I'd only been auditioning for a few months after deciding to pursue acting as a career when I landed the part.
Ephraim: (on pronouncing his name) Ephraim is pronounced "Ee-frum," but that's just one of many pronunciations. It's a biblical name that was originally pronounced "Ef-rum," but the anglicized version of the name is "Ee-frum." It means "fruitful" in Hebrew (though I am not Jewish), and a friend of mine once told me that in ancient Hittite it means "he who has fought with the devil," or something like that. I'm not sure about the last part, but I can dream, as those are both pretty neat meanings for your name.
